to convince family and friends they're "in love"
to outrun armed robbers
to survive their worst nightmares
to travel four hundred miles without killing each other
All while sharing a very small carriage by day and an even smaller bed by night.
What they don't have time for is their growing attraction. Much less wild passion. And heaven forbid they spend precious hours baring their hearts and souls.
Suddenly one week seems like exactly enough time to find a world of trouble. And maybe . . . just maybe . . . everlasting love. « less
Excellent. I laughed until I cried. Seriously, I was reading this book at bedtime and there was no way I could fall asleep at that point in the book. It was hysterical. If you like romance, you must read this.
Spinster Minerva Highwood is determined to make her way to Scotland to present her scientific findings to the Royal Geological Society. It should be easy to convince Lord Payne to accompany her since she knows he wants to get out of Spindle Cove as quickly as possible. Her plan involves making her family believe they are in love and pretending to elope while traveling 400 miles in a small coach. Colin adds his own conditions, sure they will dissuade Minerva from her crazy plan. But when she agrees, he has no choice but to accompany her. As they make their way, Minerva and Colin discover things they didn't count on...being held at gunpoint, a carriage stuck in the mud, and the sparks that fly between them.
This is the second book in Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove series. From the time Minerva and Colin were introduced in the first book, I knew their book would be special. I absolutely loved this story. There are romantic scenes, tender moments, and lost of laughs. I'm hoping to read the next book in the series soon since I have high hopes for it too. My rating: 5 Stars.
